Story Relay 2019 – Get Involved!

The Story Relay 2019 is here! This is a great opportunity to get your students writing creative stories and co-writing with other students all around the world.

Night Zookeeper Josh has written the beginning of an original Night Zookeeper story, but we need your help to finish it. Each week, students will be tasked to complete a lesson and write the next part of the story. One entry will then be chosen and the story will continue, please note that we will be looking for original ideas and good quality writing.

At the end of the relay, the final story will be published, with illustrations, onto the Night Zookeeper website for you to share with your students.
